Finding God in Everybody:

Seeing the Value in Everyone's Journey
Registration Closed

What is it?

Join us for this four-week retreat series that will offer an opportunity to enter into a contemplative experience through the medium of films.  These movies will help us explore the themes of God's constant compassionate mercy and deep love for us. God's love for us remains despite our humanity and even more so when we have not experienced love or feel we have failed.

 

How will this work?

Each person, in their own time and in the comfort of their own homes, will watch the film guided by reflective prompts. A facilitated meeting on the dates below, will allow participants to explore the themes of the featured films through discussion and personal sharing.

 

Where can I view the featured films?

For your convenience, we’ve noted where each of the films can be accessed next to the titles.

Cost?

$40 ($32 Early Bird price before January 16th!)

The cost covers access to four nights of group discussion and reflection.
